Wc can't help looking backwards as Our lives go forward. Wc theiish the good times,- we regret not having 
changed the things we could have; we again suffer our losses and commeTnor^te our accomplishTDentSr By 
examining the past, we can redefine and proceed with the future. We rechart courses, re-examine careers, re- 
evaluate decisions, and redirect our futures. But the things we cannot change, we accept, as is the nature of 
the human spirit. 

Along the way- we mark our presence with time pieces, time markers, and time passages. We stake our 
futures on the timeliness of today's decisions. We abhor the idleness of people -v^o don't lake the time to 
help others or who waste time by failing to apply themselves. Our minds are constantly conjuring ways to 
better utilize our time, to find time to do ail that we want to do. We ponder the future and what ocurrences 
time will bring. 

The one Ehing we relish most is the time we've spent bettering ourselves, for our educations are never 
wasted, regardless of the hardships or obstacles we encounter. As someone once said, "A mind is a territile 
thing to waste." And we Americans firmly belJeve that* . ^

^h pmu HiMm^k sec 


When students enter college, 
they face a whole new beginning. 
The struggles and frustrations en- 
countered and the time spent in 
preparation for college are all for- 
gotten. It ts time to start over 

With newfound freedom come re- 
sponsibility and change. Most stu- 
dents leave behind their high 
school friends and race new ac- 
quaintances. They must adjust to 
new instnictors and to diverse 
teaching methods. They are no 
longer competing with others for 
grades; they are focusing on the 
competition of future careens and 
occupations. They will face pres- 
sures that they have never before 
encou n tered — bud geting time 
wisely, studying more intense sub- 
ject areas, and balancing part-Lime 
or full-time Jobs with academics, 
family, and extracurricular activi- 
ties. As one graduate points out, 
■'Every student who parses 
through SCC Is an enduring time 

As College Transfer student JJm 
Jones conveys through his three- 
dimensional chess s^tn the possi- 
bilities are endless. Whether one 
decides to assume the role of a 
leader ^a king or a queen) or a fol- 
lower (a rook or a pawn) is entirely 
an Individual's choice. Some expe- 
riences are rewarding for the men- 
tal substance they offer; others are 
valuable Tor obtaining knowledge 
and/or skills for the ^ture; and a 
few are for liin's sake. Orientation 
to college life Initiates the experi- 
ence; Student Appreciation Day cel- 
ebrates the effort; and graduation 
£ynit)olizes ultimate success.

Planning ahead is essential For both the perspective freshman and 
the second year transfer student. Discussing the Ititure with friends, 
meeting SCC's President Richards, talking with counselors, examin- 
ing the literature from other schools on designated days, and con- 
stdehng the possibilities (including the mUitany and where your 
friends are going): these are a few of the ways that students deter- 
mine their futures. Sixty or more college and university representa- 
tives visit, bringing with them brochures, applications, and answers 
to questions that students may have.

Everybody needs a break now and then — especlaTIy after a year of 
grueLin^ study. Student Appreciation Day, scheduled in May of each year 
(celdsrated May 5, 1991, and May 15, 1992) provides relaxation, interac- 
Uoa and reward that most students feel they deserve. The day begins 
with an awards presentation In the gym. 

After Mike Mcttone, Dean of Student Ser^ces, welcomes the group 
assembled before him he presents awards to Who's Who recipients. 
CounseJor Bennett Shores thanks SQA members and presents them with

nurses' choice for "Student Murse of the Year" and the District Id M.C.

College life dep[cts a viatiety of individuals, 
each who operates on a different schedule. To 
sustain the life" of the student "body." a 
balance of actMtyn rest, and nourishment Is 
required on a daily basis. Recreation Is as much 
a part of the routine as classes are. Despite the 
absence of the extracurricular activities to which 
they may have grown accustomed, college 
students can always Und something to do to fill 
the gap between classes. 

Food, fun, champEonsttIp — 
what more could a student 
want? Soin« ^cidal and 
Enleltectual challenges? An

Some of the students who meet here are already friends and 
acquatntances. Some frietidships are new ones that will la^t a 
lifetime. Other students only pass, like two ships in the night — 
perhaps never to meet again. As they pass, though, they are 
forever altered. Different cultures, knowledge, and values arc ex- 
changed. Contrasting viewpoints and comparable opinions are 
offered, some of which make lasting impressions. Students are 
exposed to new concepts: they associate new learning w^th the 
old; they sometimes acquire open-minded attitudes and/or rein- 
force former beliefs; they evaluate and re-examine existing 

As students enter the real world, they leave behind the familiar 
and face me unfamiliar, new joumeys usually lead to careers or 
vocations. In this phase of their lives, students become the ves- 
sels of knowledge, carrying with them the cargo of their fields or 
areas of expertise. Vet, they never forget how they arn'ved at theJr 
final destinations, for on Uidr voyages they recall experiences and 
apply the lessons they have leamed.

While extracurricular activities do require valuable personal 
time, they are essential to most college students. Students at SCC 
enjoy a wide variety of pursuits such as the follo\«ng: Student 
Government Association {SQALMu Alpha Theta {Math Club), (^w 
Enforcement Organization (LEO), Phi Theta Kappa (FTK), News- 
paper and Yearbook Staffs. Drama Cub, Baptist Student Union 
{6StJ)< Toreign Language Clubs, and the Amateur Radio Club. 

Throughout the year, each club sponsored or helped with vari- 
ous activities. In the falL SQA sponsored the Tall Festival. At this 
festivat^ other organizations were invited to participate^ SQA and 
LEO Joined to raise money for the United Way by having a jail-a- 
thon. PTK memtiers held a display of crafts by students and 
faculty. The agriculture class offered a free hayride for students to 
take a break from the old routine of just resting around the cam- 

In the spring, a Foreign Language Pestival was held for area 
high school students. Also, the Math Club assisted Mr. Steve 
ALKJns with a math contest for local Algebra I students. 

Each of these ciui>s provides meaningful events throughout the 
year which illustrate that time flies when you're having fun.

Tew extracurricular campus ac- 
tivities exist merely for prestige. Al- 
though being n member ofany club 
or organization Is an honor, partici- 
pation is Intrinsically rewarding 
since so many groups not onJy sa- 
lute scholarship and excellence, 
but also provide fundamental ser- 
vices for local residents. Involve 
ment builds character and devel- 
ops a sense of adult responsibility. 
Club mennbers are leaders who un- 
selfishly give of themselves and 
work \^ith others. They become 
fundraisers, voters, instructors, 
blood donors, directors, and clean- 
up crews — the doers of their 
neighborhoods, the unsung heroes 
of the community, They thrive on 
seeing themselves and others suc- 
ceed. An amateur radio club 
"hams It up" to provide informa- 
tion to the community In the event 
of an emergency. PTK, SQA, BSU, 
nCF. and Chorus promote scholar- 
ship, leadership, citizenship, fel- 
lowship, and service. Electrical 
Club members unite to beautify 
community structures and to teach 
safety. Nu Theta Alpha and the In- 
iracultural Society provide tutors 
and sponsor contests and cultural 
programs. LEO members often be- 
come public servants while the 
Lancer and Squire's Voice defend 
"the publics right to know." Joint- 
ly, such efforts maKe the world a 
better place.

Volleyball 67 

One hundred years ago thts year 
James rialsmith created a game for a 
boy's club at the local YMCA in 
Springfield, Massachusetts- This 
gamcn which inUially used a soccer 
ball and bushel peach basket, has 
grown into one o\ the largest sports 
industries in the world today^ 

Since then, the game has under- 
gone many changes In style and form. 
The old peach basket is a thing of the 
past and glass backboards with 
breaK-aivay rims glorify the game. The 
underhanded "granny " shot is gone 
and the most exciting shot is now th^ 
slam dunk. 

Basketball is a game Tor all ages. 
But some people take the game more 
seriously than others, so SCC pro- 
vides an opportunity for partkJpadon 
in the intramural program and on the 
inter-collegiate team.

Afim M TliU Time, 

SCC's counselors and its support staff maintain encouraging 
and supportive attitudes. They tirelessly seeh ways to simpli^ 
procedures and to solve the problems that students encounter. 
They resolve Internal and exiemat conflicts, offer solutions, and 
provide options. They remain available for consultation, making 
the transition from high schoo] to college or from the workplace 
to post-secondary studies as smooth as possible. 

Instnjctors spend considerable time teaching, yet they find the 
energy and desire CO Juiow their students on a personal level — to 
discuss their probJems, concerns, frustrations, and conflicts* 
Some educators havent attended school for quite some time, but 
they still recalt the Insecurities, pressures, and demands that 
college students face. 

After all this time, SCCperaonnel still care about their students. 
They remain human, despite their knowledge and experience; 
they continually strive to be understanding and to relate Infomia* 
tion thai will be easily lntema)i£ed and applied to the real world. 
After all, students are the reason for their being here.

Student Services counselors are a great 
asset. Even though counselors have heavy 
workloads they still remain cheerful. Their 
mainjob is to ensure that students receive 
any help available in choosing their future 
careei^. Students make appointments with 
counselors to resolve problems with class 
schedules- to obtain scholarships for finan- 
cial aid, and to make plans for transfening 
to a four year university. Another part of a 
counselor's job is arranging opportunities 
for area high school students to visit and 
see firsthand the opportunities that Suny 
has to offer, Jt is 3lso not surprising to see 
them conversing with students about per- 
sonal problems and/or offering some ot>-

The rise of the computer has been swift and r^rnark- 
able. Businesses began using large computers in the 
105O'$H as soon as they were commercially available. 
Computer use grew rapidly throughout businesSn indus- 
try, and government. Consequently, a basic Knowledge 
of computers — how they were developed and how 
they work — is fast becoming a necessity in today's 

History has entered a new age, the information Age. It 
is computers which have made this new age possible. 
Every year tKey become smaller, more efficient, and 
better able to perform more tasks. As computers have 
become woven into our day-to-day Hves. it is important 
to remember that people are the ones wtio control com- 
puters. Although they are complex tools, computers 
are becoming easier to use, even as they become more 
powerful. Learning about computers and how to use 
them makes it possible to be more comfortable In this 
world of technology.

The most familiar time pieces around the SCC campus are the 
clocks trr the haiis that ten the students when to be iit class. 
College life is different from high school because there are no 
bells to atCTt the students of a starting class- This teaches the 
students more responsibility because they are held accountable 
for themselves. 

While it is true that a student's college career is a time to meet 
people, make Mends, and have fori, it is even more important for 
the individual to gain an invaluable education. The primary rea- 
son for attending college Is to learn and to get prepared for the 
future. All students must realize that the grades and the knowl- 
edge that they acquire here at SCC will stay with them for the rest 
of their lives. 

not all of the academic pursuits are restricted to the classroom. 
Hands-on training is essential in some fields. The computer lab, 
library, gymnasium, automechanic^shop, and science labs are alJ 
a vital part of the learning process. Variety is an important part of 
class time.

The average age of the SCC student is 35. 

This is not surprising, considering the 

college's Continuing Cducation/Special 

Interest prograins comprise half or class 


The older employee constantly competes with 

recently educated, younger professionals \r\ 

the work place. Although many promotions 

and pay Increases are earned on the baste of 

seniority and experience, many more are 

given according to degrees of education. This 

is why education should not be considered 

complete when initiaJ education goals are met 

and a career begins. To t»e competitive in 

today s Job market education must be a 

continual, progressive process with a 

permanent goal for self- improvement. 

tlhrough the Continuing Education/Special 

Interest programs, SCC fulfills individual goals 

with a variety of courses, conferences^ 

workshops, and exhibits offered in business 

and Industrial programs, professional In' 

service programSr vocational in-service 

education, and Human Kesources 

Development. These programs are designed 

to give students the opportunities to update 

Job skills and to expand general knowledge. 

Loca] fire departments, rescue squads, and 

police departments periect their skills with 

training couraes such as CPR, First 

Responder, EMT, Firefighter I and 11, Basic 

Law Enforcement, and In-Service Qun Control. 

Continuing Education also prepares students 

for Job opportunities: biicK mason, 

cabinetmaker, general contractor, day-care 

worker, notary public, nurses assistant, and 

teacher's assistant. A student can also train 

for a career in insurance, real estate, or

Business Education l^rst appeared In 

schools in Uie United States about 1750. 

Before Uiat time, people often gained 

business education as apprentices in 

counting rooms of merchants or bankers. 

Textbooks were written in the 1700's on 

the subject of bookkeeping. About 1751 

the first academy opened in Fhiladelphia 

under the auspices of Benjamin Franklin. 

The school taught bookkeeping and 


The first business courses were given in 

private schools. But soon students couldn't 

afTord the tuition of private schools and 

bookkeeping appeared In the curriculum of 

the Soston English High School in 1827. 

Business courses offered little attraction. 

Shorthand wasn't taught until 1865, The 

typewriter was not successfully marketed 

until 1975- But todayn many schools 

provide commercial courses of one or two 

years^ including bookkeeping, accounting, 

shorthand, typewriting, economics, 

business administration subjects. 

commerical law, as well as the 

mathematics of accounting and business 


Surry Community College is one of those 

schools. The students in Business are 

offered a wide range of classes. The 

growing demand is far medical and 

paralegal courses, but computer 

technology is also very important. Classes 

$uch as Computerized Accounting, Lotus 1- 

2-5, Word Perfect. dBase, File Processing,

students to the future of business.

It is sometimes safd that ' Susine&s is people/' E^vet^ 
activity of a business involves the work of several 
groups of people — the owner or [nvestor who buys 
Stock In the companyH the executives who manage the 
finn, the worKmen who produce the goods or services, 
the merchants and salesmen who sell these, and the 
consumer who uses them. 

Business is the world's greatest employer. The young 
person looking for a Job should always study the types 
of businesses and the Kinds of Jobs [n which he or she 
is most interested. Business firms always can use 
secretaries^ Secretaries will have the advantage in the 
world of tomorrow. There will always be a letter to type^ 
a phone to answer, and the opportunity for promotion. 

The medical and legal fields are becoming important 
to the schools because they are fields that are 
constantly advanctng> People are always going to be 
sicK and there will always be legal matters to settle,

Business Department constantly updates equipment

teach students to use various types 
of machines In producing metal 
work. Machines such as a metal 
lathe and drill press are used as 
well as lA^lders and an assortment 
of other modem tools. 

The auto mechanics shop is an- 
other very useful part of the 5CC

are taught the fundamentals of 
auto repair. Hands-on expertence Is 
a vjt^l part of the preparation that 
students received. During the 
course of a year, the stxidents dis- 
assemble, study and repair cars. 
They also learn to service vehicles 
and maintain them in good condi-

114 College Life 

A Dm U Tk Life, 

Every day in the life of a college student is different. Whettier it's 
a special day in class or at work, eacli day is distinguishable* 
Students usually schedule their classes so that they have breaks 
between them and time to spend with their friends. 

In organizing their schedules, students have to keep several 
factors in mind. Many musl worH while they attend college. Also, 
cornmitments to friends and family come high on the list of priori- 
ties. It is during these memorable coltege years that students first 
develop a sense of responsibility that they will use for the rest of 
their lives. Balancing a variety of activities also makes the student 
more appreciative of the time that he is able to enjoy when he is 
not busy. 

A lazy football game in the courtyard or a picKup game of 
basketball or anythirrg e^se can help the student temporarily for- 
get the hustle and bustle of his everyday life. Single students may 
use mis time to socialize with members of the opposite sex. The 
college provides additional social opportunities for students- The 
college held two dances, one around Christmas time and another 
in the spring prior to Student Appreciation Day.
